Every episode, I deconstruct one big idea around architectural study, practice, design and documentation - and give you practical tips and insights to apply these ideas to your study, work and life.

Topics we’ll explore include:

  • Design - So you can create better architecture, easier and faster.
  • Communications - So you can fully express your ideas in the most creative way possible.
  • History + Theory - So you can capitalise on the work of those who’ve gone before.
  • Documentation + Construction - So you can make your designs a reality.
  • Practice + Study - So you can be a better architect and build a better world.

Abstraction And Representation In Architectural Communication

Abstraction And Representation In Architectural Communication
Architecture is unlike most other creative disciplines. A writer starts to write words on a page that become a book or a play. A dancer moves their body to become the dance. An artist draws or paints what becomes the final piece of art. But architects do not make architecture. Architects make an abstract representation of architecture. So it is important to understand what abstract representation means.

Architecture Programme, Or What Happens In Certain Spaces

Architecture Programme, Or What Happens In Certain Spaces
An architecture programme captures a building function in great detail. For some designers, the function of a building can be seen to restrict the creative process, innovation and aesthetics. The lack of attention to the functional requirements will assure those that use the building every day will see it as a failure in design. Architectural programme is therefore an essential consideration in every design project and process.   Listen to the full episode to learn: ** The difference between programme and brief. ** How to define a programme. ** How to explore the programme in design.   READ THE ARTICLE HERE - https://archimash.com/articles/architecture-programme WATCH THE VIDEO HERE - https://archimash.com/videos/architecture-programme-2   RESOURCES and LINKS  ** All of my free gifts in one place - https://archimash.com/free ** My favourite tools, apps and resources - https://archimash.com/resources   INSPIRATION + WHAT TO LISTEN TO NEXT ** Architecture Project Brief Or Design Brief – https://archimash.com/articles/architecture-project-brief ** Top 9 Architecture Design Factors For ALL Architecture Projects - https://archimash.com/articles/architecture-design-factors/   CONNECT WITH ME ** Website - https://archimash.com ** Newsletter - https://archimash.com/free/news ** Social Media Channels - https://archimash.com/connect ** Contact Email or Questions - https://archimash.com/contact   NOTE - There may be affiliate links in the description or episode.
